Rachel as a guide was very enthusiastic and entertaining. The tour through the canyon and just as spectacular as in the pictures and well worth it. Only the end, where (especially on hot days) you still have to walk 2 km to the shuttle after the tour and goodbye to the guide, was a disappointment.

Great panoramas, very nice walk, certainly not too hard, temperature was ideal (but left in the morning!!). The guide told interestingly and fascinatingly about the how and why of this construction, supplemented with facts and legends and thus managed to take the audience into the story. Not like some guides who stand extinguished against their will and mumble some things. 100% recommended, by car the drive there is also worth it because you can stop and get off once, but of course that is not possible by bus.

Very nice tour of 7.7 km in total. Highly recommended for lovers of great nature spots. However, a certain level of fitness at 33 degrees in the afternoon is recommended. Altitude meters of 300m to be overcome. Competent and motivated guide. Everything worked out great with the reservation and on-site support.
